Jackfruit Tuscan “Tuna” Sambo!

Sambos/Sandwiches… they’re haven’t been my go to for quite some time but with so many beautiful real deal sourdough’s readily available I’m finding it much easier to digest, quite literally. I definitely don’t think bread, even sourdough, works well for my digestive system on a daily basis, at least at the moment, but it’s something I’m willing to persevere with!

As soon as I reintroduce a new food (catch up for anyone unfamiliar I have IBS and followed the strict low FODMAP diet for WAY TOO LONG, and I’m now working my way through the reintroduction phase with as much patience as I can muster!), I have a tendency to want to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I get so excited about all the new potential recipes I could create. It’s not the most ideal as sometimes it can be just a volume thing with IBS so two slices of sourdough might be a green light, and six slices, not so much!

This sandwich needed to be epic and it was thanks to using Nature’s Charm Jackfruit Confit which is truly awesome. The texture and flavour is sensational.  Dairy free tahini yogurt sauce, avocado, sundried tomato pesto and olives… it truly packs a punch.
